US ARMY PSYOPS HERALDRY

 

 

Branch Insignia: Crossed daggers with blade forming a lightning bolt, superimposed by a knight chess piece.

 

Authorized in November 1990 for wear by enlisted personnel assigned to the Psychological Operations Career Management Field (CMF 37).  A collar insignia for officers was approved by the G-1 on 18 April 2004.  The design is that of the enlisted collar insignia without the disc.  The knight chess piece is a traditional symbol of special operations and signifies the ability to influence all types of warfare.  The lightning bolts represent the psychological operations ability to strike anywhere with speed and the two swords represent the combat capabilities.  The item changed to branch insignia with the approval of Psychological Operations as a branch in November 2006.
